My girlfriend and I were staying in the Maes Artro Lodges in Llanbedr two weekends ago, and had gone to the local shop for provisions, and were recommended by shop owner Julie to try Bryn Artro for a lunchtime meal on the Saturday.
We met the new owners Nick and Steve, and though we were the only diners were made very welcome, they told us they had only been open a week so business was a little slow so far, understandably. There was no lunch menu on offer, just the full price a la carte menu, which wasn't exactly what we wanted. But having come thus far, we took the plunge, both ordering the lamb Clefticol. Front-of-house man Nick explained that chef Steve cooked the lamb in oil for 6 hours, served on a bed of mash/cabbage/smoked bacon, with a gin flavoured sauce. Oh my God, the food was amazing, lamb so tasty and tender with an intensely flavoured rich sauce not overpowered with the gin, we both thought it was outstanding.
Interior designer Nick then gave us a tour of the refurbished rooms, which were lovely - very tastefully done. We even got a welcome from Snowy the cat! We plan to return to Bryn Artro in the new year and stay for a night or two, and take advantage of the dinner/bed&breakfast offer, to sample more of the delicious menu on offer, and stay in one of the fab rooms with 4 poster beds.
We would like to wish Nick & Steve all the best for their business, I'm sure once word spreads locally that this will flourish as it deserves.
